My folks live in Madison, Connecticut.
They have a subscription to the New York Times.
I probably need to send them a box of Band-Aids and a tube of Neosporin for all the paper cuts they’ve surely endured the past week.
Because the New York Times interviewed Will for a business article a few weeks back.
And then they sent a photographer. With a very big lens. It was fun walking around the park with Dan, as he asked folks he’d just photographed for their names and hometowns.
“I’m from the New York Times… ”
But this was an “evergreen” story. That means it’s not breaking news and will be just as fresh tomorrow as it was yesterday.
Evergreen stories tend to get bumped. And I explained this to Mom and Dad once word came that the article was in the chute, scheduled to run … sooner or later.
Undaunted, they dutifully scoured every inch of the paper for days.
Happily, only a few bumps occurred.
And today the article appeared on page 3 of the business section (sorry, it’s no longer available online).
Here’s my favorite quote from Will: “When I need to make a decision I call my brother and sister and they say, ‘O.K.'”
He’s going pay for that comment once Dan and Natalie see it!
